Halo Trust personnel work diligently to clear open fields and bushes in Brovarska Street, Brovary, Kyiv Region, on Thursday, Oct 18, 2022. The farmlands were occupied by Russian forces in March and were left scattered with landmines upon their retreat. Unfortunately, the area has already claimed the lives of one State Emergency Service deminer and two civilians. Despite the danger, the deminers of Halo Trust are committed to ensuring their own safety, and clearing the land takes months. While the bulk of demining efforts are conducted by the government's State Emergency Service, foreign governments and organizations such as Halo Trust provide aid. The work of completely clearing the country of landmines and unexploded ordnance is estimated to take ten years.
